Animation Production
The Film and Media Studies Department at Dartmouth College is accepting applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in animation production. Candidates will be expected to teach both introductory and advanced level courses in animation production that represent a spectrum of animation formats, from hand-drawn and stop motion, to 2D Flash and 3D Maya. The ideal candidate will also be able to offer courses to supplement our critical studies curriculum in one or more of the following areas: international media studies, new media formats, media history/theory.

The Film and Media Studies Department offers a major and minor and averages an annual enrollment of 450 students in our course offerings. The department’s curriculum emphasizes an integration of media theory, history, and practice, and faculty have a history of inter-disciplinary teaching and research. Our majors and minors often double-major or minor in other intellectual and artistic fields, and the department’s current animation offerings are electives in the Computer Science Department’s Digital Arts Minor.

Candidates should hold a PhD, MFA, or equivalent terminal degree (or be near completion) and demonstrate potential for original artistic production and/or scholarship.
